The Finer Points Of Sadism

 Essere O Essere [0kbps061]

Not much thought was given to how you, the listener, and your ears would fare in hearing the vocals clearly, more thought was given to how to confuse you and otherwise disorient you. Some consider hearing the vocals clearly an important factor in how they listen to their music. Good for them. Feeling the emotion in what’s being played is harder, and no one likes to do any work for what they love. They want the artists to do it for them. We never have pandered to human requests, that is: normal, natural, simple, commercial, conformist requests. We do enjoy receiving them though, the silly things. We recorded this and it was fun. Not much else can be said. It’s loud, too much so in a lot of areas, just so we could feel clever and different. The title means “To Be Or Be” in Italian, so read into it, interpret it or let it pass by just like your life has and continues to do. You’re getting this free, so take the abuse. This is The Finer Points Of Sadism after all. No synthesizer was used on this LP at all, and any synth noises heard are from circuit bent items. The 3 instrumentals on this album were all improvisations when recorded. Jacobb composed the more structured pieces on a Fender, not on paper, just through chord progressions and memory. All lead guitar and bass was improvised by Jacobb. Ashley used 3 different slides (wood, glass and steel) and a Buddha Machine on her steel guitar, in addition to various delay pedals. Jacobb recorded the sounds of car wash equipment in the mechanical room at a family owned carwash in Boise, using a handheld Tascam DR-05. He also played drums and percussion using plastic trashcans, buckets, steel ladder rungs, floors, etc. A vintage Rhythm Ace and Alesis SR-18 drum machines were used for other beats/rhythms.
